Gluten-Free Apple Cranberry Sauce Recipe
MAKES 4 CUPS
A combination of apples, cranberries, juice and spices makes this a bright complement to the Thanksgiving meal. It can be made a day ahead and refrigerated. Return to room temperature before serving.
1¼ cups apple cider or apple juice
1 cup orange juice
1¼ cups brown sugar
½ teaspoon ground cinnamon or 4 cinnamon sticks
¼ teaspoon ground cloves
3 cups fresh cranberries, rinsed
1 Gala or Granny Smith apple, peeled, cored and diced
1. In medium saucepan, add apple cider and orange juice, brown sugar and cinnamon and cloves. Bring to boil and cook 10 minutes. Remove from heat. If using cinnamon sticks, remove them from saucepan.
2. Add cranberries and diced apples and return to a boil. Reduce heat and simmer on low about 10 to 15 minutes, stirring occasionally. Sauce will thicken and is ready when apples are tender and cranberries have burst.
3. Transfer to serving bowl and cool completely before serving.
